New Zealand motocross sensation Courtney Duncan has once again triumphed on the world stage, securing her fourth women’s motocross world championship series crown in a nail-biting final round in Turkey.
Riding her Kawasaki, Duncan displayed her dominance by storming to victory in the opening race in Afyonkarahiser, immediately establishing a 21-point lead over her closest competitor, Spain’s Daniela Guillen.
The 27-year-old rider then sealed the title by finishing second in the second race, adding to her previous world championship wins in 2019, 2020, and 2021.
Duncan’s achievement is all the more remarkable given her consistent performance throughout the season, where she never finished lower than fourth.
Her journey to this moment was marked by determination and hard work. Last year, hopes of securing a fourth successive title were dashed when she suffered a broken collarbone during practice for the GP of Portugal.
